DEDICflTIOD 



To a teacher and friend who has instructed us, 
encouraged us, and at the same time, been one of 
us. He is always ready to sympathize with us, under- 
stand our problems, and assist us in any endeavor. 

With sincere respect, love and gratitude that 
are so rightfully his, we proudly dedicate this 1951 
ROCKETEER to 



MR. W. H. RICHARDSON

Selection of the Hall of Fame was 
made by a secret faculty committee. 
These are the students upon whom the 
highest honors of Northwest are be- 
stowed. 

Their character, scholarship, 
leadership, and participation in extra- 
curricular activities have made their 
contribution to the college and the high 
school the most outstanding.
